Our story

Process and Packaging Engineering with pleasure and a passion for food

When you choose VME, you choose a professional partner who has been active in the food industry for many years, especially in the areas of dairy, cheese, fruit juices, baby food and confectionery. VME is the expert on Hygienic Design, Digital Design, Process and Packaging engineering, as well as the accompanying project management. We design according to the most recent guidelines, codes and standards of hygiene and quality.

Our customers appreciate our love of food and technology. It is with good reason that our philosophy is Enjoy Projects!

Engineering challenges

Driven, committed and with significant knowledge and experience, we help you as a food producer to achieve the most effective solutions for your engineering challenges. We know your challenges and are aware of developments and innovations in your industry. We translate your ideas into clear steps towards a working production line. Our ultimate goal is making sure that you as a food producer are better able to carry out your work with pleasure.

Enjoy Projects

Enjoy Projects is not just an empty slogan at VME. It says a lot about our methods and corporate culture. We not only enjoy our projects ourselves, we also want to ensure that our customers and their employees enjoy them as well. That is why we are personally involved in your company and we try to keep the disturbance to a minimum. Ultimately, we aim to reach the goal together: a more effective method and process.

Engagement

We don’t need to tell you that food is vital. We owe our existence to food and that involves certain responsibilities. VME is conscious of its social responsibilities. We implement them in different ways, for instance through our contribution to city farm Eyghentijds , teaching positions and technology lessons at primary schools.

We like to invest in development opportunities of professionals by involving them in project cases and supervising internships or graduation projects.

We try to create awareness among our employees and clients around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We don’t do this in isolation. Together with our partners we are working on innovative developments that contribute to the food industry.

We are ready for the next generation!
